ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV) -- Authorities evacuated a building near Mid Rivers Mall on Tuesday due to a gas leak.

Police said a car drove into the alley behind a Barnes and Noble bookstore in the Mid Rivers Center and struck a gas meter.

Officials said the wreck caused a major gas leak, prompting authorities to evacuate 10 businesses inside the strip center as a precaution.

Authorities said the gas leak was capped and customers were allowed back in the stores after it was deemed safe.

No injuries were reported in the incident and charges are not expected to be filed.
